The NAB will contain classrooms, offices, conference rooms, medical simulation centers, research laboratories, food service, and other support spaces. Research lab centers, which will group researchers with similar interests and goals, healthcare simulation centers, research center laboratories, and academic spaces for both the School of Public Health and the School of Medicine together in one shared facility.

The project will be registered and certified as LEED Silver rated.
